I have a spoiled rotten,10 yr old neutered male Shih Tzu, named Kuro. He's also blind, but still my sweet baby!Although it's only him and me now, there's a lot of talking around our house. I didn't realize he knows so many words! Some people say it's repetition, but I prefer to think he's that smart.......
We moved to Michigan from Indiana 4 years ago, and for the first 7 years of Kuro's life, the only expense I had was vaccinations, grooming,and buying toys. ( Lots of toys)
But time passes on and age starts taking a toll, and he started having problems: bladder, tumor on paw,liver enzymes too high, dental work, eye problems,and for the past few months, skin problems.
Dr. Dhaliwal has done all of Kuro's surgeries, and worked with me on the other problems. He never loses his patience, and stays calm while I am asking my 100 questions .
Dr. Dhaliwal is definitely in the correct profession. It seems he has a passion for not only helping animals, but he takes every opportunity to learn new techniques so he can help them even more.
The staff is also very nice. They greet you with a smile, take the time to talk, explain meds,etc. and if Dr. D. doesn't call to check on Kuro after a procedure, the staff will, and that means a lot to me.
Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital is a caring place, and everyone makes sure your pet is given the best care. Whatever it takes to make you and your pet "HAPPY!"
About two weeks ago I brought my english bulldog puppy(Oscar) in to see Dr. Dhaliwal. Since having been turned away by numerous vets because no one wanted to perfrom the surgery on my little puppy Oscar because of little to no experience with a salivary gland surgery. Dr. Dhaliwal has done this type of surgery before and was able to help Oscar. His staff was very kind and courteous and treated Oscar as if he was their puppy. I wanted to say thanks for everything and I would without a doubt be coming here for any of Oscar's veterinary needs. Anthony Mach December 2012.

I would like to truly thank Dr. Dhaliwal and his entire staff for their professional veterinary expertise in caring for my dog Mandy. From the moment I walked into the office, I was comforted and reassured that my dog could recover from her affliction.
Mandy previously had surgery at another veterinary hospital for the removal of a growth on her hind leg. For some unfortunate reason, the area became badly infected that the doctor's opinion was amputation to save Mandy's life.
At first, I was devastated about this news and wanted to get a second opinion. Therefore, I began seeking other veterinary hospitals that specialized in this area. However, for some reason Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital would constantly reappear on my list. I began to read the testimonies from his previous clients and suddenly a peaceful feeling came over me. Even though Dr. Dhaliwal's hospital was a great distant from Detroit to Ypsilanti Michigan, it was worth the ride.
Mandy's outcome was the same, yet the calming and patient manner in which my dog and I were given from Dr. Dhaliwal and his loving staff made a difference. Today, Mandy is still running, climbing and playing even with three legs and I am thankful for the time and quality of life I still share with her.
On March 23, 2012 I picked up my brand new hyperactive 8 week-old Maltipoo puppy. Shortly after bringing her home she fell and injured herself. I immediately took her to the local animal hospital, where she received X rays and it was determined that she had broken her back right tibia, and would need to have surgery, to repair the bone. The hospital informed me that the surgery would be between $2,500 to $3,000. I was devastated by the news that not only was my brand new puppy in extreme pain but I may not be able to afford the cost of her surgery.
Feeling hopeless about her situation I called my normal vet to schedule an appointment for a second opinion. I was originally told that the second opinion appointment would be free, given the circumstance, and then later called back by the vet tech and informed the appointment would actually cost me around $70.00 in addition to shots and boarding costs. This would not have normally been a problem if I had not just spent roughly $500.00 at the animal hospital the night before. I went ahead and scheduled the appointment anyways, feeling like I had no viable options.
